22-year-old Cameron Boyes of Prince George is facing six charges following a dangerous driving incident on Sunday evening.
According to the Prince George RCMP, Vanderhoof RCMP notified police in PG of a driver who was last seen heading east out of Vanderhoof at a high rate of speed.

- Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle
- Obstruct a police officer
- Resist arrest
- Possession of a weapon
- Unauthorized possession of ammunition
- Possession of ammunition contrary to order
Police are now asking any witnesses of Boyes’ driving behavior to contact the RCMP.
The vehicle is described as a grey Honda sedan with the rear bumper hanging off and extensive damage to the exterior of the car.
